Anonymous asked: Is losing ten pounds in two weeks unrealistic?
Healthy weight loss is about 1-2lbs a week with the understanding that water weight can fluctuate 3-5lbs a day. You can lose “10lbs” in 2 weeks but it wont be real weight loss most of the time.
So yes, unless you are dieting down for a competition need or a sport specific need make a longer timeline. It’s not a sprint. There is no reason you need to rush your weight loss. Take care of your body. Keep in mind that road to losing 10lbs may be realistically a 5-6 week goal, but think of how completely insignificant that is in your life in terms of time and think about all the knowledge and experience you will pick up in that time to make smarter and healthier changes.
Feed your body right, train smart, and you’ll be at whatever goal you set out before you know it.
